Hillery Rebecca Sproatt + I'm Wednesday's Child + Happy Lady Eats


Do you mind if we double up today? I am wanting to pop H and I together, mainly because my schedule has been so busy this week I feel like I am lagging is a pretty chocka day tomorrow too... I wanted to get both done at once so I didn't have to worry too much.

So, today we feature 2 super talented creatives, plus one fabulous find from the 'wonderland'.. shall we get started?

Hillery Rebecca Sproatt

As part of my printmaking course, I am doing a wee study on my Grandmother. She passed away about 17 years ago and was an amazing and strong woman.

Of all things, I still have a very vivid memory of her china cabinet. I was so intrigued by all the treasure that was in there. Memento's from travel, little bits of porcelain and a variety of different ornaments. I never ventured in to it, but I do remember spending long moments gazing through the glass. I don't know why I never dared to open the doors, maybe the pleasure I got from the wonderment of it all was enough to satisfy me.

When I saw these images in
Hillery Rebecca Sproatt's portfolio I fell in love! I had originally planned to feature some of Hillery's illustrations, but I couldn't go past this first image below. I would be intrigued for hours in front of these display cases - so many stories, so much history - so much treasure!

I'm Wednesday's Child

I had a oohhhh! moment when I saw the illustrations of Wa-tinee Paleebatt. Wa-tinee is one talented gal!

Wa-tinee's store 'I'm Wednesday's Child', is full of gorgeous pieces of work. Each piece is a print of an original painting that is then digitally coloured. So beautiful!

There is so much to see in Hillery's images. I totally relate to these along with the story of your grandmother's china cabinet.
